About Me

Please let me know if you do not receive my swap! I will make it right! You can message me here at Swap-Bot. Thanks!!

Finally getting started with handmade art cards and postcards. I’ve never considered myself an artist well I helped in the art community creating installations and putting events together but I’m finally doing some art work. It’s super fun. I am delicate about what I create but I’m bravely sending out creations now pushing them into the world. Little pieces of work. I try to make art every day not like a job but I feel excited about creating. I’ve been doodling and making collages and painting.

Allergies: I’m allergic to perfume & scents unless they are made from plants and not chemicals. I’m most allergic to citronella and limonene which my dermatologist says is in most fragrances and here in the USA companies do not have to list them as an ingredient. They can just include it as a general fragrance. I’m doing better but I was really sick and inflamed for a few years. Some days I could barely move and my face would get really swollen and red like a fire engine red. Allergy shots are helping but they aren’t a cure. And I also have an acupuncturist that helps too. If I receive perfumes or scented items I share them with other people but it’s best I stay away from them as much as possible.

Favorite Films, TV Shows, Book

Books, Music, Films: I love films. I regularly go to the public library here in San Francisco and check out tons of books, music & film.

Books: currently reading in fiction everything by Ursula LeGuin, Paolo Bacigalupi, Neil Gaiman, High Howey, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson.

Cookbooks & DIY & HGTV sorts of projects (I don't really DO many projects but I still love to watch tv shows and read and listen to free podcasts on these topics).

Non-fiction topics: I listen to political shows/watch a lot of news; environmental stuff, travel channel, I even watch the home shopping networks lately.

Wish List

I'm completely open to what you send. I don't have any specific wishes right now. So far all the extras I've received have been fabulous.

I'd like to learn how to collage and do mixed media. I watch YouTube videos but I think I need an in person class soon.

Likes

I love all colors: jewel colors like bright vivid purple, red, pink, red.

I also love pastel colors: lavender, lilac, rose.

I love seasonal colors: for Autumn-- pumpkin, cinnamon, cardamon colors.

For the Winter-- sparkling, shimmering, crystals, icing I love all these styles.

For Spring-- pastels and soft colors have been captivating me lately. I used to be an all black kinda dresser but I have more and more antique rose, lilac, baby blue, and pale greens now.

For Summer, I love tropical colors and also the blue water, the sandy beach, and giant flowers. I love it all.

I love Art: Impressionist painters like Monet, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec.

And Dada-like the cut out words.

Surrealist Art and more.

Comment: Thank you for the letter1 I'll get a response out soon (I'm in letter writing catch up mode at the moment...kind of like the eternal decluttering/organizing catch up mode!)
Response: Take your time I like slow letters; it’s less pressure and savored. Sort of like slow cooking.
